The cup of blessingwhich we bless , is itnot the communion of the blood of Christ? The breadwhich we break , is itnot the communion of the body of Christ?17Forwe being manyareonebread, and onebody:for we areallpartakersof that onebread.18BeholdIsraelafter the flesh:arenotthey which eat of the sacrificespartakers of the altar?19What say Ithen?that the idolis any thing,orthat which is offered in sacrifice to idolsis any thing?20But I say, that the things which the Gentilessacrifice , they sacrifice to devils,andnot to God:and I wouldnot that ye should havefellowship with devils.21
Ye cannotdrink the cup of the Lord,and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord'stable,and of the table of devils.22
Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy ? are we stronger thanhe?23
All things are lawful for me,but all thingsarenotexpedient : all things are lawful for me,but all thingsedifynot.24Let no manseek his own,but every mananother's wealth.
25Whatsoever is soldin the shambles, that eat , askingnoquestionforconsciencesake:26For the earth is the Lord's,and the fulnessthereof.
